Schneiderlin had a good game. Held his position well, always showed for the ball, neat and tidy in his passing and broke up play on the rare occasion Gana wasn't there to do it.
Those proclaiming he lacks ambition in his play need to realise the role he's being asked to play. It's obvious Sam wants him to sit deep, take control of the ball and slow the game down. We know he has the ability to be more forward thinking, he showed that aplenty last season.
At the moment he's a far better option than Davies et all.
True I think he was alright last night and in general we had spells of comfortable CM play.
We lack a transitional midfielder like Barkley who can spray it or suddenly burst 20-30 yards up the pitch.
Think merino looked absolutely quality last night, very surprised they got him and hopefully there’s a relegation clause..
Tom Davies is a worry. Looked every bit the teenager this year unfortunately.
